All paper coffee filters are fully compostable and biodegradable, and if you want to be extra eco-friendly you can opt for brown unbleached paper filters which compost even more efficiently than white coffee filters.

However, if you don't have access to a compost bin, you can simply throw your used coffee filters in the trash.

They will still break down eventually, although it will take longer than if you composted them.
